The Eighth & Ninth Day of Christmas, Brought to You by Bloomberg and Beto-Backed Texas Lawmakers

The Eighth & Ninth Day of Christmas, Brought to You by Bloomberg and Beto-Backed Texas Lawmakers

On the Eighth & Ninth Day of Christmas, Anti-Gun Reps Gave to Thee: Repeal Open & Campus Carry 

Asking again: are you tired yet?  

We're getting tired of reporting the bad news, but our opponents never rest!  They will keep coming up with ways to restrict your right to keep and bear arms in the Lone Star State.  So NRA-ILA will continue counting down the legislative lumps of coal that anti-Second Amendment lawmakers in Texas are leaving in gun owners' stockings this year.  Because we can't let up for a minute.

The 2021 Texas legislative session is less than a month away. Please support NRA-ILA as we work with gun owners to STAND YOUR GROUND on your Second Amendment rights at the Capitol in Austin next year!   

Next up: Repealing Texas' Open Carry & Campus Carry Laws: House Bill 127 by Rep. Lina Ortega (D-El Paso); HB 201 by Rep. Terry Meza; and HB 213 by Rep. Diego Bernal (D-San Antonio).

* House Bill 127 & House Bill 213 restrict open carry of rifles and shotguns outside of one's own property.  Long gun carry is currently legal in Texas.

* House Bill 201 allows public institutions of higher education to opt-out of the state’s campus carry law, effectively gutting the law NRA-ILA fought to pass in 2015 to allow law-abiding students, staff and employees to protect themselves on college campuses.

NRA-ILA will oppose these measures, which restrict law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms in a legal manner.
